16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg spoke before the United Nations today at the 2019 Climate Action Summit. Her passionate plea for action and condemnation of capitalism has been widely shared on social media and the hot takes have been as opposite as reactions can possibly be. There may be many perspectives about the nuances of her speech, the scientific claims she makes, or the general topic of climate change itself, but there are only really two camps on how to view Thunberg herself.
These camps were broken down nicely by Princeton Professor Robert P. George:
There will now be two kinds of people: Those who find what they watch on this video deeply moving and who regard Greta Thunberg as a prophet and perhaps a saint, and those who are outraged by what they regard as the indoctrination, manipulation, and exploitation of a child. https://t.co/u7uf0jTfDE

George’s assertion is playing out perfectly on social media as the heated debates about Thunberg as a person, a child, and an activist seem to head in one direction or the other. Climate change activists are enthroning her as the hope their movement needs. She;s the new child-leader who represents a generation that has the most at stake since many activists will be gone while Thunberg is left “fighting the good fight.” Climate change skeptics see a girl who is being used by people as a political prop, a well-spoken and likable pawn to help them push their radical agenda.
The ironic part is both perspectives are currently correct. Thunberg really is the near-future of the climate change movement, and being enthroned creates a self-fulfilling prophecy in which she will lead because the people are desperate to follow her. Simultaneously, her ascension to this level of reverence is a sad testament against the religious zealotry of the climate change movement that seems to have found the artificially inflated messiah they’ve been seeking.
Here’s the video of Thunberg’s speech:
Here are some responses from both sides of the aisle:
A bunch of people in the Greta tag are vowing not to bring any new children into the world because the "earth is drowning and burning." Do people actually believe this?

Greta Thunberg is one of the greatest people on this planet. She’s 16 years old and she’s done more for the planet this year, than world leaders have, for the past 20 years. I truly believe she’s capable of saving our planet, or at least start the saving of it. Thank you Greta pic.twitter.com/4si4w4PFRL

The left loves their kids don’t they? Greta gets trotted out as a climate expert. Hogg is the leading voice for gun control. Desmond is still getting ones shoved in his panties. All the rest are trying on vagina costumes.

When I grow up I want to be Greta Thunberg.

The left says we can’t criticize kids like David Hogg & Greta Thunberg who are used as political pawns to push globalist agendas.
But it’s perfectly fine for them to attack the Covington students or 9 year olds like Mini-AOC for supporting our President.
These people are sick.

If the Left stops having children for the environment, where are they going to get new propaganda poster kids when David Hogg and Greta Thunberg grow up?

If Greta Thunberg doesn’t win the Nobel Peace Prize, my tweets aren’t going to be very peaceful!!!
And that’s a threat!

It worries me that very few of my fellow liberals(who accept the general urgency of her message) don’t see here a 16yr old girl having a public emotional breakdown. Children are not our political mascots. Dear @GretaThunberg pls take a rest ❤️ Here’s why—> https://t.co/T5V2y2zLZP https://t.co/GOiJcT4lS7

Can I file a human rights complaint with the United Nations against organizations using children as political props? https://t.co/hIF0o0k2iV

One day, #GretaThunberg will realize that she is a victim of child abuse, not climate change.
I genuinely find the video circulating of her to be sad.
The Left is stooping to new lows with this blatant example of child exploitation.

Climate change activists have the superhero they’ve always wanted and skeptics have further proof of the indoctrination of children into a radical ideology. Greta Thunberg is effectively proving everyone’s point for them.
We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

Gifts for Patriots: Forget All the Woke Corporate Retail Gifts This Year
Let me put the disclaimer up front. I’m a patriot. This site believes in promoting patriotic companies, supporting America-First ideas, and disseminating the truthful news that everyone in this nation needs to read or hear. To that end, it makes sense that the companies we allow to sponsor us are patriotic, America-First, and truth-embracing organizations.
Now for the other disclaimer. Buying from the three companies listed below using our promo codes helps us tremendously. The offers we give our readers access to are the best offers available; even using Mike Lindell’s promo code gives the same discount as using promo code “NOQ.”
We know there are many conservative sites who offer similar or even identical promos. We are not the biggest, not by a longshot, but we try very hard to provide excellent coverage of the most important topics to patriots. We do it unflinchingly and often at great sacrifice; there’s a reason you won’t find Google ads or Facebook buttons on our site. We cannot rail against Big Tech if we’re taking money from them or promoting their products. I’m not going to throw stones at other conservative news outlets who are beholden to Google or Facebook. We have our own sins. Nevertheless, you know when you use our promo codes you’re making an impact by supporting an honest style of delivering America-First news and commentary.
With that said, our sponsors have gifts available for all price ranges.
For the very special someone needing a very special gift, contact Our Gold Guy. Imagine their surprise when they see silver or gold coins in their stocking! Or, you can treat yourself to the ultimate hedge in the Biden economy. As the supply chain crumbles, inflation skyrockets, and the other investments lose momentum, precious metals make for the perfect protection. Be sure to tell them JD Rucker sent you!
At $499, the Freedom Phone will help you or someone you love break free from the Apple/Google duopoly in the smartphone world. With promo code “MAGA,” you’ll save $50. It’s well worth the peace of mind of having a completely uncensored device with an app store that cannot be canceled.
Our good friends at MyPillow have gifts ranging from stocking stuffers to high end bedding. You can knock out a lot of Christmas shopping with one stop at their website, and you’ll get maximum savings on each product you order by using promo code “NOQ.”
Lastly, if you’d like to include us on your Christmas list, we’d LOVE if you sponsored us. Donations go directly towards helping us disseminate important articles and podcasts to the nation.
As patriots, we must stand up for what we believe in. That means we slow or completely eliminate our expenditures with companies who hate us for our ideology. Our sponsors are all proud to support the America-First agenda, which is why we allow them on our pages. Like I said, you won’t find Google ads here.
